    Huge success in our house! Thank you so much for this! My 29 year old son, who has moved back home recently, said it was a definite 8 out of 10! He cleared his plate very fast. This will be a regular here!

  • Not bad. I didn't have any

    Not bad. I didn't have any zucchini, so I used grated carrot instead and used green curry paste. I also added some steamed veges. Nice flavours.
